Best Of The Week – 2011 – W08

Hello guys,

Time for the “Best Of The Week” links for the week that just passed. Here are some links that drew JavaCodeGeeks attention:

* A 30 minute guide to integrating Twitter in your Android application: A detailed guide on how to integrate Twitter in your Android app. It covers almost everything, from setting up an account, to authorization and tweeting. Very cool!

* Invoking A Secured Web Service With soapUI: Web services are flourishing these days and soapUI is a neat tool to help you use and test those that are SOAP based. This article is a full-blown guide on how to invoke secured web services using the soapUI.

* RPC or REST in the Cloud?: A short, but very interesting article discussing two of the most common approaches used for remote invocation in Cloud computing, RPC and REST.

* Clean Code: Four Simple Design Rules – Obligatory Read: Jakub from the Holy Java, one of our JCG partners, discusses some of the Simple Design Rules proposed in the Clean Code book.

* RESTful SOA in the Real World: In this presentation, different ways used by the industry to implement a RESTful SOA are discussed, detailing how eBay did it in order to achieve performance, and what lessons can be taken from that.

* Spring Hibernate Integration: Title says it all, a guide on how to integrate Hibernate with a Spring application. This article is just to get you started. After that, don’t forget to take a look at our JBoss 4.2.x Spring 3 JPA Hibernate Tutorial and if you deal with GWT, our GWT 2 Spring 3 JPA 2 Hibernate 3.5 Tutorial.

* Terracotta Brings Real-Time Analytics to the (Java) Masses: Terracotta, the vendor behind Ehcache, the famous caching solution, offers real-time analytics to Java developers. Note that this article was published in the New York Times, interesting.

* Windows Phone 7 Development for Android Developers: I am not really sure how many Android developers will make a jump to WP7, but for those that do, this tutorial is definitely going to help you get started.

* Pragmatic DSL in Practice, with Java and Drools: An article discussing how to create a Domain Specific Language (DSL) with JBoss Drools, the pragmatic way.

* Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) – What Developers Can Expect: An article discussing some new features expected in the forthcoming Android 3.0 release, from a developer’s perspective. The Honeycomb release will mainly focus in tablet’s support.
